Hi There! Hannah here, from Fanciful Spaces!
It is DAYS away from fall, and I’m so excited for all of the color changes were expecting. When I lived in Central and Southern California, I missed seeing the leave change colors with everything turning bright yellow, crisp orange, and fiery red.
Even if you live in eternal summer, you can still get in the festive autumn mood with CutCardstock’s delicious paper selections. I chose to create a gratitude card – or maybe it is a masculine birthday card – focusing on golds and oranges.
Most of the cardstock that I chose to use already had a shimmer to it because everyone knows I LOVE sparkly things! Just take this project, for example!
But, one of my chosen cardstocks did not. I sprayed it with some Lindys Stamp Gang Glitz Spritz. This specific line has now been discontinued, however, their Starburst line would also have many perfect options for this purpose.
Believe it or not, that was basically the only step of this card that wasn’t die cutting! Yes, it is SO easy to make! I focused on PinkFresh’s Geo Star Dies for my background.
The card base is a #110LB Basis White, my new favorite card base. Then, I cut a sheet of green cardstock, Pearl Textured Curry Green.
The Geo Star Die layers were cut with Stardream Metallic in Flame and Discount Cardstock in Orange Zest. It was this last layer that I sprayed.
My sentiment was created using a layer of Stardream Metallic Gold and Pearl Textured Buttercup.
All of these layers were glued down with some Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive by Tonic because it dries quick and matte.
I finished this card off by gluing on some translucent star sequins I had and touching up the sentiments with my Faber-Castell PITT artist pen. I think it was this last bit that gave the card its magic. What do you think?
To wrap up my package of love, I will seal it in a Tangy Orange Pop-Tones Envelope, perfection!
